Congressional Visits Day 2019 20 March 2019 Capitol Hill, Washington, DC

Every year, AIAA members – engineers, scientists, researchers, students, educators, and technology executives – travel to Washington, DC, for a day of advocacy and awareness with national decision makers.

Your participation, enthusiasm, and passion remind our lawmakers that aerospace is a key component of an economically strong and secure nation. If you are interested in the future of your profession, the advancement of technology, the furthering of scientific research, and the strengthening of our nation’s security, this event is for you!
